* = chord has no 3rd         ** = add9 (no 3rd)


         INTRO:  D* - E* - D* - E*
                 F*
                 F* - E* - D*
                 D** - A**
                 Bb** - A** - G
                 G - E - A**
                 D** - A** - Bb** - A** - C** - D**


                          D**            A**
             I.  it's the other side of another mountain.
                 Bb6         C
                 I found the passage again.
                      D**                A**
                 it's hard, it's hard to go so fast
                      Bb6                C
                 when life, when life is so compressed.
                     D**               A**
                 but maybe, maybe when mountains are past
                 Bb6           C
                 and these are plains at last.


  INSTRUMENTAL:  D** - A** - Bb** - C**


                     D**                 A**
            II.  the fork in the road is full of old signs.
                 Bb6                   C
                 bullet hold words are covered with vines.
                   D**                  A**
                 I follow the road that leads to my girl.
                 Bb6                       C
                 hope it won't lead to the end of the world.
                   D**                    A**
                 beneath the noon sun, my eyelids close.
                     Bb6                   C
                 the rest of me falls like dominos.


  INSTRUMENTAL:  D** - A** - Bb** - C**  (twice)


                 D**               A**
           III.  in the distance I see the sun rise
                 Bb6               C
                 on the shoreline, on the shoreline,
                       D**                A**
                 using sticks of light to prod the grey mist.
                 Bb6              C
                 colors spill all over the sky.
                     D**             A**
                 I'm not so sure the sun I see
                 Bb6           C
                 is not my lover smiling at me.


                 D**             A**
      BRIDGE A:  smiling at me,
                 Bb**            C**
                 smiling at me,
                 D**             A**
                 smiling at me,
                 Bb**            C**
                 smiling at me.

                 D*  E*
                 smiling at me,
                 D*  E*
                 smiling at me,
                 F*  E*  D*
                 smiling at me.
                 D*  E*
                 smiling at me,
                 D*  E*
                 smiling at me,
                 F*  E*  D*
                 smiling at me.

                 D**               A**
            IV.  look at her face, look in her eyes.
 (short verse)     Bb6               C
                 a stranger I feel I recognize.
                     D**                       A**
                 she feels the same way, seems obvious.
                   Bb6                      C
                 I ask her her name.  "your future," she says.


                 D**             A**
      BRIDGE B:  smiling at me,
                 Bb**            C**
                 smiling at me,
                 D**             A**
                 smiling at me,
                 Bb**            C**
                 smiling at me.

                 D*  E*
                 smiling at me,
                 D*  E*
                 smiling at me,
                 F*          E*  D*
                 she was smiling at me.
                 D*  E*
                 (instrumental)
                 D*  E*
                 (instrumental)
                    F*                      E*  D*
                 it seemed like she was smiling at me.
